Don't bother.  apt is no good without a set of packages to work with,
which you won't have for the existing system, and for the debian
packages to work you need to have a consistent set of packages installed
which means the whole base system using debian packages.  Hybrids just
don't work and isn't worth trying.

Either run what it has already, or run only debian.

I can't imagine there is any part of the existing system worth keeping
anyhow. :)
